Many of you will have heard that our booking for UK Masters at the David Broome Event centre has been double booked and we are no longer able to hold the competition there.
We have been looking at alternative venues. We have tried:
Aston Le Walls – can’t get in to set up until Saturday
Onley – already booked including grass and arena
Arena UK – have to stable – expensive to hire and adding in stables
Somerford Park Farm – arenas not anywhere big enough!
Newark Showground– not enough parking as already booked- and can only let us have after white gates and runway – they suggested corralling in runway ring – sadly that defeats our object!
Peterborough – very keen to have us back but can’t do this date
New Park – too far south!
Great Yorkshire Showground has been suggested – possible if available and Scotland and England North willing to run it (no progress here)
We have successfully booked:
Oakridge Arena who have given us additional parking – space for 2 arenas, hook ups are available, showers, restaurant and club house. There is also an indoor arena which could be used for a social. Plenty of stables are also available. This is a fantastic venue, normally only used by the under 14 and under 12 age groups.
Oakridge will also provide the popular “Ranch BBQ” on Saturday night and food will also be available all weekend in the clubhouse.
